Fast Company Magazine recently announced what it considered to be the 50 most innovative companies of 2012. Along with those companies it also came up with a top 10 most innovative music companies.

There are a couple of old school companies and some new school companies, and even an artist. I don't know if I agree with their choices, although a few are definitely interesting. Here they are:

  1. Soundcloud - sound sharing platform
  2. Spotify - music streaming
  3. Pandora - personalized online radio
  4. Bjork - artist with world's first app album
  5. XL Recordings - indie label producing mainstream hits
  6. Mason Jar Music - innovative collaborative concert model
  7. Ticketmaster - ticketing giant 
  8. Bandcamp - direct to fan for musicians  
  9. The Echo Nest - open-source music identification  
  10. - social music sharing
It's worth reading the article to see if you agree with their thinking in picking their top 10. Did they miss any?

I agree with most of these, but Ticketmaster? Really? I beg to differ.
